Periods and Hygiene:

Many times women keep the same pad for hours when the flow is not high, due to which many women get vaginal infection.

Change your pads every 4 hours:

Using the sanitary pad for a long time brings moisture to it. This creates bacteria that cause infection. Therefore, in no case do not apply the pad for more than 4 hours. If the flow is fast, change the pad every two hours. The same rule applies to tampons as well.


Use intimate wash not soap:

While changing the pad, keep washing the private part with water, try to keep it clean and dry. Also, never use soap as an intimate wash. Soap is very hard, it also kills the good bacteria there. Nowadays, many types of products are being sold in the market for intimate wash, which are medically approved. Make use of them.


Hot shower during periods:

Take bath with hot water during menstruation. During this, there is swelling in the lower parts of the stomach. Taking a bath with cold water can increase your problem. Warm water will give you relief and you will feel refreshed. It also removes the bad odor coming from the body.
